Leigh Ofer: One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

November 16, 2009

trash1HA Schult’s “trash people” project took him 6 months  and 30 assistants to create this wonderful work of art composed of random crushed cans, disassembled computer parts, etc.  The reflections on the wall are haunting and immediately drew me with their stark despair and hopelessness. Using the combination of light and dark to create the reflections on the wall, I believe Schult recreates in the viewer’s mind the feelings of despair that drives a person to the street. Living on the streets represents the lowest rung on society’s ladder, and by looking at Schult’s project, forces one to think of hypothetical situations that causes someone to resort to such a state.
